Not sure about down by you but it didn't seem to be as bad round our way as it was advertised to be. I'm sure over 3" actually fell, but most of it melted and the roads weren't perfect but they didn't really get worse than a bit slushy. It was basically all gone by yesterday afternoon as well. Still a pain in the arse though.

Rain is the flavor of the day for the next few days, it would seem, but the daffs will enjoy that after the snow and I like rain anyway.

No, it didn't end up amounting to anything here, either. It snowed for a long time, big, fat flakes, but it never really accumulated at all.

I'm fine with the rain, too.

It did snow for a long time up by us too, started aorund 11 in the morning, and I think it stopped somewhere between 8-9.

50, gray, and drizzly.

Leaves are coming out though. It looks a bit like East Anglia in spring, only without as many flowers.

Waking up to 70f with dew points about the same, the weather peeps predicting afternoon storms all week. Seems summer has arrived in Florida, again.

You'd think the rain would keep it at bay.

Sorry to hear that. Never had hay fever myself, but it sounds like misery.

I only have a couple of bad seasons a year. It's something here, in the Midwest. I never have this much trouble in the UK, or anywhere I've been.

Probably some species of tree we have in abundance here that you weren't used to. Cottonwood is everywhere in summer.
